Author Notes

Crumbles were one of my all time favorite desserts growing up, and that really hasn’t changed. There’s no better time to enjoy these than fall. With all of the delicious apple varieties in season, now’s the time! They’re also a great way of using up those apples that you might have accidentally dropped on the floor and bruised, or left in the fridge just a bit too long. —Lindsay Pleskot

What You'll Need
  • 4 large gala or pink lady apples
  • 1/2 lemon (juice only)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup bran buds
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch coarse salt
  • 1 cup 0% plain or vanilla Greek Yogurt (or ice cream)
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Slice off the top of the apple and scoop out the core of the apple, including the seeds. Rub the top and the insides of the apple with the lemon.
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the butter, oats, bran buds, pecans, cinnamon and salt to make your crumble.
  4. Divide the crumble mixture between the apples.
  5. Place the apples upright on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake until tender, approx 30-35 minutes.
  6. Transfer to serving dishes and serve with yogurt or ice cream.

I made this for a dinner I was invited to. I had to make 6 of them so I increased the qty of some of the ingredients. I toasted the pecans, added some of the scooped-out apple mixture, (seeds removed) some graham cracker crumbs and put the tops back after filling to create a clever, contained dessert. I used an apple corer and pushed it repeatedly into the apple but not near the bottom. Then I scooped the insides out with a spoon that did not bend.
